These picks SOUND great.
Reviewed in the United States on September 30, 2018
I bought these picks because they sound great and are a great price. I have the 2.0s also, and love them. Let me say up front that the non-shiny surface of these is no substitute for holding your pick correctly. It isn't rocket science any more than learning how to play a chord without the strings buzzing. I used to drop my pick all the time until I took lessons with a jazzer who taught me this: Wedge the pick into the crease of the first knuckle in your index finger, and hold the pick in place with your thumb at a near 90 degree angle. Since I learned this, I have not dropped my pick once! Unfortunately, I still haven't mastered the art of not losing my picks. Hence, 72 packs of these! The 1.5s look greyish black like the 2.0s when you buy them, but under the powdery finish (which quickly disappears after a few uses) they are a nice green color. Both thicknesses feel and play well. Best of all, these sound so good! I just took a workshop from a famous guitarist who was in town from France, and he was using this same pick. The rounded edges are great for strumming rhythm (holding it the same way I described) and the pointy side for playing single notes. I can't stress strongly enough to hold the pick correctly. If you're going to go through all the trouble to buy a guitar and learn how to play it, for goodness sake learn this super easy skill. Best wishes!
